To translate a moving form on a static two dimensional surface is not a mean task. The artist here has achieved a magical simulation of real life appearance on canvas in oil paints.

The portrait of Raja Raja Varma has an austere, mystical quality that is more typical of a great religious painting than portraiture. Raja Raja Varma was the uncle of Ravi Varma, considered the father figure of modern Indian art. Raja Raja himself was a painter of merit in water colours. Belonging to nobility, painting was just a hobby with him, but he greatly encouraged his nephew who showed rare talent. The artist has depicted a realistic and convincing representation of the most respected man of Kilimanoor.

The artist has chosen a tanned skin tone for the weather beaten face, which shows the life experience in each line and wrinkle. He sports moustaches and a short beard. The inset eyes, the straight nose and the grim mouth seem a result of careful study. A silk shawl with a brocade border confirms his rich and royal status. The background is dark and bare, adding to the austerity of the portrait.

I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
